She is the designer of the popular "Central Park Hoodie" cardigan for the Interweave pattern store and was a designer included in the "Great American Afghan" by Knitter's Magazine. Heather is a freelance designer for major yarn companies (Lion Brand and Coats & Clark). She also teaches classes three times a week at a local yarn shop in Buffalo, New York, where she resides with her husband and two daughters.
Blocks are quick, portable and fun to knit, and are a great way for you to try out new techniques. Most of the blocks you've seen before will have been square, but Heather's book is a world away, featuring circles, leaf-shapes, hearts, hexagons... well, as the subtitle suggests, 150 blocks in any shape by square! It's a valuable resource, full of designs that can be used alone or combined to make larger projects, like throws and shawls. Beginners and advanced knitters (as well as everyone in between) are catered for, with items made in the round, side-to-side, from the inside or outside, and top to bottom.-Knit Today
